“We are extremely proud and pleased to welcome all of our new board members to the hospital.” Ota added.

The Maui Memorial Medical Center Foundation is a private, non-profit organization that raises funds to support the Maui Memorial Medical Center in Kahului. The facility is the only full-service, acute care hospital on the island.

The foundation works each year to raise funds for patient programs, equipment, medical education, capital building and special projects.
